Overview

The Sea Runners by Ivan Doig

In this timeless survival story, four indentured servants escape their Russian Alaska work camp in a stolen canoe, only to face a harrowing journey down the Pacific Northwest coast. Battling unrelenting high seas and fierce weather from New Archangel, Alaska, to Astoria, Oregon, the men struggle to avoid hostile Tlingit Indians, to fend off starvation and exhaustion, and to endure their own doubt and distrust. Based on an actual incident in 1853, The Sea Runners is a spare and awe-inspiring tale of the human quest for freedom.

The Sea Runners is an outstanding book. It is about four men who have been employed by the Russians to work in Russian America. They decide to escape in a Kolosh canoe and to paddle their way to Astoria. They run into many hardships on their way. This book is written with very elegent wording. Sometimes you have to read over a paragraph to fully understand it. It is a thin book but you are in for a long read.
